The Bible in 90 Days


Wow... another week of delving into God's Word! 

This week I completed Daniel and read through Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi, and Matthew. 

Yes, you read correctly... I am now in the New Testament!

Here are a few scriptures that stood out to me...

Amos 5:14-15a

14 Seek good, not evil,
that you may live.
Then the LORD God Almighty will be with you,
just as you say he is.
15 Hate evil, love good;
maintain justice in the courts.

Micah 6:8

8 He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the LORD require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.

Matthew 7:12

12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.

Matthew 11:28-30

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

It seems I needed to hear how to live for God... not for self.  And when I get tired from burning the wick from both ends... again, I can go to Jesus Christ and REST.

If you are reading the Bible in 90 Days (or more), how are you doing?  We are nearing the finish line.  What has God shown you?

  6. Wow, I am seriously impressed...90 days is amazing! SO happy to find your blog! I love the Bible too, and just stared Lamentations on my second read through. Once I finish the Old Testament, I'll start my third time through but not in 90 days, lol. I try to encourage Christians around me to read every day even if it's just a little bit, so they can keep going. It has so enriched my life. Glad to find you!

  7. I love Micah 6:8 too! I was excited to get to the NT too---and finished up Hebrews last night. I think I might actually finish it up this week!

  8. I think I need to plaster this on my brain: "I needed to hear how to live for God... not for self. And when I get tired from burning the wick from both ends... again, I can go to Jesus Christ and REST." Thank you for sharing are so close to finishing!!!!

  9. I am a little late with doing the challenge but I think I am going to start reading this book. I am so grateful I found your blog, you have helped me with cooking, destressing and now, you are helping me find peace. I am so grateful for you!
